Mario Mancini's FRANKENSTEIN '80 (1972)

Starring John Richardson and Gordon Mitchell, an Italian up to date (from 1970s viewpoint) variation of Mary Shelley's classic novel. A bit sleazy and at times overlong but worth watching.
The widescreen aspect ratio is unfortunately cut on both sides, but all in all, a decent copy.

The missing sides are obvious only during title sequences, the lack of audio synch can be comical at times, there's the common defect of longish passages when the screen is too dark for the viewer to work out what's supposed to be happening, but the transplant serum is a clever plot twist and worth an extra star.

Download vlc player free:
In the NOT fullscreen, open tools in the top menu.Click on Track Syncro. You can play with it to try and figure it out. The easiest way I've found is to find a passage that has an image that corresponds to a sound. Set up a loop and play with it until you are happy with it.

Sound a hair out of sync but the Quicktime download runs perfectly on VLC/Linux. VLC can adjust for the out of sync sound while it's playing but It didn't annoy me enough. Typical spaghetti-horror. Worth watching.

Subject: PD or not PD
I have a sneaking suspicion this may be GATT but I've yet to confirm it. I have however downloaded the Quicktime file and all I get is blank screen no matter what player I use. So for me, it doesn't matter whether it's pd or not, I don't get to watch it. Oh well.

Subject: good sleazy horror but sound out of sync
i downloaded to watch later and found out the sound is out of sync,however it is a pretty good sleazy horror film with gordon mitchell as dr frankenstein which is unusual because mitchell used to play the imitation hercules roles and a monster in frankensteins castle of freaks.if you can get pastb the sound sync it is a pretty good movie.with alot of gore and sex scenes thrown in.
